1st MWF Vympel [Ultra Thin] Received.



These early Poljot, Ultra thins are becoming vary hard to find these days,i have been looking for one for some time.Bought this one of a trusted e.bay seller.It is totally original,has a nice early movement,the dials do tend to suffer due mainly to age and use,the dial on this one,has some signs of ageing,but,is acceptable.
Winds and sets well,[sometimes they can wind quite roughly],keeps excellent time.

    I think the numerals on this one are just superb!

  3. Is it a very good movment (2209 from Luch or Vimpel with 23 jewels)? Is it good for everyday use or just for collectors?

  4. Hello,
    Yes its a very good,underrated movement.But,it is a vintage watch,so,only suitable for light use.It is not particularly shock resistant or watertight in any way.
    Regards,
    Russ.

  5. but the 09 dosen't mean shock resistantion?

    i have another vintage russian watch with 2609HA movement and this movement produce Raketa nowdays also and i'd like to wear this watch on simple workdays and the vimpel only with suit.

  6. Yes,i am sure wearing the vympel with a suite will be perfect.I was just trying to illustrate that the vympel is not robust.
    Wear your Vympel in good health.
    Regards,
    Russ.
